Strong connectivity, including relatively low latency, is required for zone data collector/IMA communication. When sites are not linked with good connectivity they do need to be separate farms. It can be a WAN link, but it needs to be a decent one. Steve Greenberg Thin Client Computing 34522 N.

We have the same problem because of WAN link replication between DS servers....

We had numerous issues with the IMA service starting over the sat link which caused delays getting the servers back up if there were issues. We ended up splitting the DS into 2 farms 1 in BNE on the Oracle DB and 1 on the island on an SQL 2005 DB (There were also other business and technical reasons for this decision) Needless to say there has been a vast improvement in the IMA service and server response time and the users are much happier as well.

I'd like to collapse them into one farm so I'm pondering what to do about the datastore; should I setup a SQL server at the remote site and replicate, or since 4.5 can run indefintely off of the LHC should I just have the remote server access the DS over the WAN? The WAN in question is a geo-synchronous satellite, so about 800ms and it's a pretty heavily utilized small pipe. It's also up and down a lot sometimes. Looking for thoughts, suggestions, experiences, brain farts, etc. thanks. _____ Add more friends to your messenger and enjoy! <http://in.rd.yahoo.com/tagline_messenger_6/*http:/messenger.yahoo.com/invit e/> Invite them now.
